Been playing lately with the use of watercolour in pastels, as they make the pastels colour sing. I start up a painting with a plain painting in watercolour using base colours and then add pastels. The paintings are brighter, as you can still see some of the watercolour below. First painting below is a painting of a Kereru that I am painting at present
I am an artist and live on the Kapiti Coast. Presently I am completing a Bachelor of Maori Visual Art (Raranga). I work mainly with textiles (includes Raranga which is weaving with flax), clay and paint in pastels and weatercolours.
